something i did unconsciously to improve grip, when your moving plates around the gym hold a plate in each hand with your fingers ( like hooks) and just farmer walk when loading up bars

^always do that!

plate in each hand. use the plates that have like a half inch lip on the plate and carry it by that with 3 or 4 fingers.

I need to change my routine up but I'm at a loss as to how to make it all work together. I don't feel like I'm getting enough of a workout in anymore. Might start doing splits again. Going to be a struggle for time though.

Berz out.

I'm pretty sure they think I'm juicing since I'm putting on weight while they look the same they always do. They also wear those phaggytime skin tight polyester shirts.
what you guys wear then? I assume you mean these underarmor shirts - they are really comfortable tho

lots of ppl just grip the bar like normally, have you ever actually FUCKING gripped the bar i mean it almost hurts, you would be surprised how much that helps.

Maybe that is (part of) the problem with my grip strength. I normally just make hooks with my hand and let the bar sit on my fingers.

i wear under armour compression fit tee's to the gym

and i agree they're really comfortable

it doesn't get in the way or bother my skin during a workout and doesn't smell as bad as a cotton tee shirt would

Most of the bigger guys at my gym wear saggy tees or sweaters. It's mostly little fobs and skinny Asian kids wearing UA.

I wear my UA cold gear or Nike pro fit when it's cold outside

Cheap Long-sleeve Champion polyester junk from Costco. They were like 12 bucks a pop, paired with shorts. I'll go with a T shirt if i'm not planning on doing any cardio, but I can't stand a wet t shirt sticking to me. The polyester breathes so well.

lol billy badass. I bought a couple Nike Pro Fit shirts a little over a year ago. They were lose, but now that I have gotten bigger they are becoming too tight in the arms are becoming restrictive.

Squat 300lb x7. But chest needs work. I bench 205 and really want to hit 2 plates!
